Cheese of Life

This morning we checked out the farmers’ market downtown. Once you factor in a trip through the consignment store and three individual visits to the interactive fountain, I would say that we made great time in just about three hours. The end-of-summer tomatoes reassured me that even if I a) can grow some and then b) lose them all to raccoons that c) I can still get my fix. Local, organic, and $3/pound. Victory.

Other than that, we’re having an uneventful Saturday. Or, rather, I am. Damon and Alden are playing a game that I think would be called Cheese of Life! Apple of Death! It involves a lot of Alden eating cheese while Damon discretely eats an apple. Alden generally is of the position that he would like to eat whatever it is that you’re eating. He would, to be more specific, like to eat all of whatever you’re eating. If he can eat it with his fingers, that’s even better. Strangely, the only thing he’ll generally take a pass on is sweets. Your saag paneer, olives, pickles and cheese are not safe. But cake? Nah.

I think we’ll see a lot of Cheese of Life! games for the next few weeks. We’re hanging out in temporary housing, and have been for about two weeks. Most of our stuff is packed up in storage. I can’t cook. All my spices, my knives, my good pots and pans have been replaced with cheapo renter minimal cookware. I can’t tear through books. I don’t have enough to keep me occupied at a high rate. And I can’t go out very much. I don’t have any friends yet.

But you know what’s fun? We signed the contract on our house and now, barring a blow up during the inspection, we’ll live here soon:

    And I’m with Alden. If there’s saag paneer on someone else’s plate, I want it.

    That’s a beautiful house. I’m going to live there, too. As an added bonus, I woke up one morning in college with my hair in cornrows and I think I could replicate them on someone else’s head.
    You’re going to need a coffee maker.

    • Were my fancy pants not apparent earlier?
      I’m so happy to hear that you’re going to live there too. I think you will find that I know how to buy sheets, towels and bathrobes that will make you glad about your decision to move in. Damon wouldn’t cross the threshold of a house without a coffee maker. He actually stopped for coffee this afternoon in the sixty bazillion degree heat.
      Funny you should say that about the cornrows. Just yesterday I was suggesting Alden has enough hair for that very ‘do. So now it’s clear you’re right to move in.

  28. Tonight it was vegetarian corn dogs. It’s good to know that if you’re ever visiting I will be able to feed you both the same thing.
